A Note on This Beer
Oregon’s Three Creeks Brewing knows how to bring the chocolate -- 40 pounds of Belgian chocolate to be exact! That’s as much weight as 10 hardcover books, 2 dining chairs, or 8 chihuahuas! And you’ll taste every drop of this yummy cocoa decadence in their Bourbon Barrel-Aged TenPine Chocolate Porter.
Aged 9 months in bourbon barrels for an 11% ABV, notes of honey and light spice evoke essences a la Basil Hayden’s. In other words, imagine if Billy Joel named his song “River of Whiskey Fudge” instead of “Dreams” and you’re on the path to nailing this flavor down.
40 lbs of Belgian chocolate and Imperial-strength additions of Chocolate Malts spin out aromas of dark Nutella spread with hints of Caramello, enticing you to sip the luscious ganache mouthfeel...and then whiskey comes along to get you even more crunk on cocoa. The chocolate notes rise up more in the finish with a flavor akin to bittersweet cacao nibs.
Wanna find out if there’s such a thing as too much chocolate? Pssh, we both know there’s no such thing. Be one of the first outside Three Creek’s taproom to get a taste of this whiskey-filled chocolate truffle of a brew!
*Serve at 55-60 degrees to get the most flavor out of your cocoa bombs.
